Syrian refugee renounces Islam after his first taste of bacon
A 38-year-old Syrian refugee Rakim Shaheed has renounced his religion after having his first taste of bacon.
The refugee who recently immigrated to Canada and was recently employed in a Toronto butcher informs that he accidentally tasted bacon for the first time in his life and ever since, he has not stopped eating it.
“It tastes like heaven!” said Rakim, newly employed at a downtown Toronto butcher shop. “I took one bite of a club sandwich my boss prepared for me and I almost fell off my chair,” he told local reporters. “It was like a burst of flavour hit my taste buds and shook me like an earthquake” he recalls, visibly still emotional. “I can’t believe no one ever told me it was so good,” he adds.
Continuing, the Syrian refugee turned new Canadian citizen couldn’t believe how a few bites of the sandwich changed his life radically.
“If there is a God, for sure he would let me eat bacon. Why would he punish all Muslims for eating bacon? It tastes so good!” he asks, visibly angered by the whole affair. “I feel cheated, I don’t understand why I have been lied to about this for so long,” he told a local radio host. “I eat it every day and feel much happier now that I have bacon in my life,” he added during the radio broadcast, although he also admits to being shunned by many members of his community. “They can’t understand, they won’t taste it and so, they will never know what they are missing” he acknowledges, visibly disheartened.
